A bit out of place I know!


Yes it is a long time until Father's Day [here in September!!] but I was fiddling with ideas for swaps and found a very similar card in the SCS gallery owned by Stephanie [slanzel]. It was a really lovely card so I have changed colours, paper, ribbon and made up one. Thank you Stephanie for the layout!

I really liked the idea of punching out the centres of the stars and then placing a contrasting star over the punchout. Now I am working on a second card using the same sketch so will show it later.

Stamps: SU Occasional Greetings, Wanted and Classic stars wheel
Card: Blue Bayou, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Soft Sky Spring Break DSP
Ink: Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie
Old Olive Ribbon and Pewter brads

I really like this layout and this is a fabulous card with the stars! I wanted the star punches sooo bad and now that I have them I never seem to use them! Might have to CASE this layout!
Blessings, Maria
